Youth Ministry Sunday
Sunday, December 3, 2017
The purpose of this special archdiocesan collection is to assist the work of the Ministries and Outreach Office (M&O) in providing formation, training, and support to youth ministry.
This special second collection will take place on the December 2/3, 2017 weekend (First Sunday of Advent) at all parishes in our archdiocese.
As well, parishes with active youth ministry programming will receive a rebate from this collection, as long as they meet the following criteria:
- The parish is pursuing a Comprehensive, parish-based vision of youth ministry.
- The parish is taking steps to educate and train appropriate personnel, including sending youth ministry leaders to training offered by the M&O.
- The parish has had regular representation at the Youth Ministry Coordinators’ meetings offered by the M&O.
Clay produced a video last year that can be shared through your networks: share it on your parish website and social media networks, or get permission to play it before the weekend or the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd (https://youtu.be/6PojbUfvNgo). Clay does a great job in describing the collection and what it means for you and your parish.
Here is a quick 90-second vlog that Clay also produced, with practical strategies as to how to make the most out of this opportunity https://youtu.be/Axw3TcZPCKQ.
Lastly, we’ve included a couple of graphics that you can use to help you promote Youth Ministry Sunday. It’s sized to be a Facebook header and also a square graphic for social media like Instagram. (click on the image for the full image)
YOUTH MINISTRY SUNDAY: December 3, 2017
The purpose of this archdiocesan collection is to assist the work of Ministries and Outreach Office (M&O) in providing formation, training, and support for youth ministry. Youth ministry in our archdiocese continues to grow, as evidenced by the number of parishes with youth ministry programming, and the number of participants at archdiocesan events and training opportunities. Parishes with active youth ministry programming will receive a rebate from this collection. Please be generous in supporting the youth of our parish and archdiocese.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at the M&O if you require further assistance or need more info.
